Rectal thermometers are presently the most accurate form of temperature measurement. However, researchers found temperature discrepancies of as much as 1 degree in either direction when ear thermometer readings were compared with rectal thermometer readings, t
Xiaomi has launched the MIJIA Ear Thermometer under crowdfunding on Xiaomi Mall. The digital thermometer carries a crowdfunding price tag of 169 yuan (~$25) but will officially retail for 199 yuan (~$29) after the exercise.
The thermometer has selling points such as rapid temperature measurement, 0.1℃ high-precision sensor, large LED digital display, and dust-free storage box. It is especially suitable for temperature measurement in families with babies.
The Mijia ear thermometer has a built-in high-sensitivity imported temperature sensor, which accurately captures the infrared radiation energy emitted by the eardrum to read body temperature, showing a body temperature change of 0.1°C.
In terms of the design, the MIJIA Ear Thermometer is white and translucent, round and compact. There is one main button and a operation button to test, easy to get started. The display also has a high brightness and a large font displaying thge temperature, clear reading at night, avoid misreading.
The probe is designed to bend and support the inner wall of the ear canal. With a slightly swingable probe, it can adapt to the physiological bending of the ear canal more dexterously, ensuring that the center of the probe is kept at the center of the eardrum for accuratetemperature measurement and temperature capture is more accurate.
Before being inserted into the ear canal, the probe will be preheated to make it closer to the body temperature of the human body , so that it is comfortable to enter the ear and will not cool the ear canal. Even measuring a sleeping baby will not cause interference.
The crowdfunding exercise is open to persons in China and they can participate from the Xiaomi Mall app.
